Never Weaken


Published 1921
Topics Harold Lloyd


From Wikipedia: Never Weaken is a 1921 silent comedy film starring Harold Lloyd and directed by Fred Newmeyer. It was Lloyd's last short film, running to three reels, before he moved permanently into feature-length production. It was also one of his trademark "thrill" comedies, featuring him dangling from a tall building. Lloyd and his crew honed and perfected their "thrill" filming techniques in this film, and put them to astonishing use in the 1923 classic feature Safety Last!.

Subject: Harold Lloyd Owned All His Films
Lloyd owned almost all his films and refused to
let them be butchered on TV re-runs.This is why he's not as well remembered as Keaton & Chaplin and why there is little of his works in public domain. If anyone wants to see Lloyd's genius he will have to buy one of the collections
like 'The Harold Lloyd Comedy Collection -
Vol 1-3'.

I'm looking for a public domain version of High and Dizzy. Anybody know where I might find one?

Subject: Absolutely WONDERFUL!
I'm a big Buster & Charlie fan and only discovering Harold. Yes, shame on me, but his films are far less available than those of the aforementioned guys. I was searching for "a good alternative", and Harold certainly IS it! This is my first Lloyd film and I love it! There are lots of amazing witty gags that make you roar with laughter (the sequence where they are "searching for clients"!!! made me laugh my bum off!), a cop and a great "thrilling" sequence! All in this film in its place, just perfect! Harold won me over instantly. I wish there were more of his films available online. Yes, the situation with Keaton and Chaplin films is so much better... Loads on the Internet, in stores. But no DVD with *his* films is sold in my forsaken place. :-/

Subject: One of Harold Lloyd's best !
Send this one to a chiropractor !
28 minutes of laughs - definitely a 5 star

Harold Lloyd should be at the top of your comedy list. I agree he rates far, far above Chaplain.

Subject: At last some Harold LLoyd's antics!
I love this man and I think he ranks up there with Mr. Keaton. Enough of the little tramp stuff. He is a good comedian as well as great filmaker, but he doesn't hold a candle to Mr. Lloyd's atheleticism (with three missing fingers on his left hand which he had) or Mr. Keaton's deadpan delivery( a broken neck plaqued him all his life
after filming The General from a stunt gone wrong)Please more of Lloyd and the prequel of The Sins of Harold.....
